Journal of a Photographer highlights a talented freelancee photographer's work.
Front End Description
The client had the layout, design, and 99% of the theme completed when I was contacted. All the code was provided and examples of the outputted code where hardcoded in place – I just needed to make the functions and make everything display properly. I worked on very specific UI elements (the WordPress comments, the Archive page functionality, the Links page functionality and the monthly calendar functionality, as well as modifying a few existing plugins).
Back End Description
I ended up creating several custom functions for each piece listed above and then making it as easy as possible for the client to further customize the appearance if needed.
Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts
I had not worked with a theme that used tables for layout in years (perhaps ever) – so it was a blast from the past while working with the code. To me – tables are actually harder to work with for display than CSS so I had to pull out some tricks I had not used for years.
